NOTHING BUT ONLINE TUTORING! Back before any of us had ever heard the word Covid, I was already tutoring online.
Bad weather, a tight schedule, or an inconvenient location are no longer a problem.
Using an interactive online whiteboard with an embedded web cam display, we can work together no matter where you live. All you need is a computer (Mac or PC) and a decent internet connection. The technology is simple and dependable, which allows good student/teacher interaction without getting in the way of the learning and instruction process.
We schedule a tutoring session by phone, text, email, or through my website. Just before your appointment, I will send you a link to start the session. You click on the link, and we begin. It’s that simple.
It’s easy for you to instantly upload homework problems, sample tests, review sheets or any other documents for us to work on together. As an added bonus, at the end of each session you will receive a PDF containing all of the notes and examples we used during your lesson.
My current favorite online whiteboard is BitPaper. If you don’t already have a BitPaper account, we’ll get you signed up at the start of your first session. It’s free, takes just a moment, and requires only an email address and no special hardware or software downloads.
Does online tutoring work? Absolutely! In some ways, it’s even better than in-person tutoring. You don’t need to run across campus (or across town) to meet your tutor. If the weather is hot, or cold, or snowy or rainy, not a problem. Still in your pajamas? No worry, because you don’t need to leave your dorm room or apartment. There’s no need to find a parking space, catch a bus, or risk your personal safety while walking to/from your appointment. If you prefer a face-to-face experience, you can always activate the web cam so you can see me, or we can see each other (it’s totally up to you).
